This very popular restaurant is on the market square, an attractive square not too far from the main cathedral. We’d walked past it a few times, either just passing by or to stroll around the small market.

The blue and white striped chairs and blue tablecloths are striking, and we thought it would be a good place to try one evening. When Eddie from our rooms also recommended it, we decided to give it a try.

There’s always a queue—and I can see why, as the service was good and the food great—but luckily we got a table pretty quickly. It’s listed as a basic fish restaurant and their fish dishes are superb. We’d heard about the huge shrimp, and black risotto, done in the Ston style (Ston is an old town on the Peljasic Peninsula nearby), so we wanted to sample those.

We shared a couple of prosciutto plates and salads, but the highlights were the main dishes: wonderful scampi (looked like small langoustines to us), done in a garlic-tomato sauce; and the black risotto, done with squid ink and chopped pieces of octopus and scallops. They were really delicious. I think the photos tell the story!
